"Nails"
by Pillar
Lyrics:

I can feel my heart beating
With a pulse that is not my own
I can hear myself breathing
a breath that brings life to bones

In the valley of the walking dead
There is life there is more unsaid
If I never surrender I'll never remember
The tie between life and death
Cause I die to myself every chance that I get
There'll be no more regret

Everyday I put another nail in my
Another nail into my coffin
Everyday I put another nail in it
I don't care cause I'm the one swinging
Oh Oh Oh
I don't care cause I'm the one swinging
Oh Oh Oh
Its not about me Its not about me No!

I can see myself standing
My reflection is not who I was
I can feel my soul stranded
In a place that I want to be lost

From your breath I see the light
It gives me strength to face the fight
When you speak the time is right
You can speak these bones back to life
"Reach For The Sky"
by Red Letter Hymnal
Lyrics:

When the world has got me down
And I'm empty like a ghost town
When desert sun has beat on me
And overwhelmed me by the heat
Just when I lose hope and think I am lost
Through the mirage is the truth of the cross
Like water to me when the whole world is dry
I know where my help will come from I reach for the sky
I reach for the sky, reach for the sky

When good and bad and ugly strain
Inside my mind I'm like a train
Who's out of fuel and out of fire
Won't move again I've no desire
But You give me fuel to start moving again
Through every failure and every sin
Where do you go when you've no strength to try
I know where my help will come from I reach for the sky
Reach for the sky, reach for the sky

When trouble rides on in to town
And evil circles me around
God's my defense so I won't flee
I won't go down I'm packing heat
Reach for the sky, reach for the sky, reach for the sky

(For the sky) Lord I lift my eyes
(For the sky) with my hands held high
(For the sky) You won't leave me dry no
(For the sky) God You always hear my cry
"Worthy"
by Scarlet White
Lyrics:

Can you see, now, with your eyes
Drifting away
You feel like nothing will change
Can you hear, me, say you're fine
Numb to the pain
Will you feel anything again?

Oh you're irreplaceable
And I can't, stand to see you like this
Oh you've been stronger now
And I will, take the weight from your heart

You are better than you think
And you will grow to find that it's easier, than you believe
Cause you're not in this alone
The battle has already been won
You are worthy

We need you, now, by our side
Ready to fight
You are the reason we rise!
Oh isn't it beautiful, how we find
The strength in our lives

You're better than that
All hope is not lost
You're worthy of love
You're worthy of life
"This Is Not A Test"
by TobyMac
Lyrics:

Fell out of the sky
Hit the ground running
The future is tonight
They'll never see us coming
Takin' by this urgency, won't let this moment pass
The Kingdom is alive
We're stepping on the gas

We're checking in, so check it out
We're dropping in, there ain't no stopping us now
We've only got one shot
Gonna take it now
Goin' all in, gonna make it count
Won't look back, gotta set my eyes
Cause there ain't no practice runs in life

This is not a, this is not a test
This is the real thing
This is not a, this is not a test
This is the real thing
We're gonna go til we got nothing left
This is the real thing
This is not a, this is not a test

We're checking in, so check it out
We're dropping in, there ain't no stopping us now
We're breathing in, we're breathing out
We're dropping in, there ain't no stopping, stopping us now
We've only got one shot
Gonna take it now
Going all in, gonna make it count
Won't look back, gotta set my eyes
Cause there ain't no practice runs in life

We gonna move
Live every second, make it count for you
Make it count, make it count
This is not a test
We gonna move
Live every second, make it count for you

"Scarecrow"
by Decyfer Down
Lyrics:

Hey you, Mister Holy One don't let no dirty soul get through that door
Stand tall as the wicked ones drag their dirty sins across your floor
I see right through the emptiness in you
Hollow shell straight from hell

Scarecrow save yourself
Hollow soul I don't need your help
You stand on the weak
Turn down the lost
Save me from all that you are

Don't cast your judgment down by empty words that know no love at all
Redemption finds its way to the willing ones so broken from the fall
I see right through the emptiness in you
Hollow shell straight from hell
"Tomorrows"
by Falling Up
Lyrics:

My song isn't sung by angels
Isn't played in chambers
Or hallways

My sound is an anxious tapping
It's a restless moving
Always, always, always

My place isn't in this building
There are no golden ceilings
That stand tall

My place is a dream that's failing
It is broken and waiting
To fall, to fall, to fall

Oh Lord Jesus
I'm still trying
Wait for me

I stay today
And I'll run tomorrow
Would you wait for me
"Lights We Burn"
by Nine Lashes
Lyrics:

She took a walk and kept her head to the ground
And everything around her, it was tumbling down
The veil she hid behind was not as safe and sound as she thought
You were there while she was starting to drown
She disappeared as all the waters abounded
Standing by, you watched and fed your hurt with a frown
Well bravo, bravo

You say that you loved her
And in a sense, well that's more than ordinary
I'm begging to differ

(Woah) The lights we burn have all faded out
(Woah) Is anybody seeing this?
(Woah) We've left the dead behind in the crowd
We're not the enemy
We got the remedy

Well look around you, tell me what do they need?
You stand surrounded by a world on its knees
The love that only God could deed gets lost in the pride of our lives
And He cries

You say that you loved them
And in a sense, that's more than ordinary
I'm begging to differ

There's someone alone in the dark
(Show me a life not dark and broken)
And we have the light in our hearts
(Give me a life not dark and broken)
So let it out, let it out, let it radiate
Let the world see the light we held so far away
It gives them life, gives them peace beyond the world of man
So let it out, let the world become alive again
"Revolution"
by The Rival
Lyrics:

It started with a question
And turned into a fire

Keeps on burning
Keeps on burning

Fingers turn to fist
And we're raising them higher

Raising them higher
raising them higher
Explosions in the sky
You can see it in their eyes

Are you ready now to
Go go go!

Who here feels like a revolution?

Run the streets and the bonds will loosen
If not for us, then tell me who is
If it's not for love, then why should we do it

Who here feels like a revolution?

They tried to turn the crowd into a whisper

We're not gonna let 'em
we're not gonna let 'em

Tried to tie our hands but they know we're resisting

Raise your hands high
Raise your hands high
"Give It To Me"
by Thousand Foot Krutch
Lyrics:

I've never felt like I belonged
I've never fit in any place, been alone, until now
Been carryin' a weight that's not my own
This levee's gonna break, and I'm not sure I can hold on

And I'm not sure, how long, I can, hold off this storm
There's a, dark cloud, right overhead

Give it to me
Just give it to me, give it to me
I'll take it all away, just give it to me
Give it to me, give it to me
I'll take it all away, just give it to me
I'll take it all away, just give it to me

I was taught I should stand up and be strong
It turns out it was a truth I could've sent home, until now
I was born with a shotgun in my hand, I'm not afraid of anything, but the dark without you

I'm not sure, how long, I can, hold off this storm
There's a, dark cloud, right overhead

Give it to me
Just give it to me, give it to me
I'll take it all away, just give it to me
Give it to me, give it to me
I'll take it all away, just give it to me

"Never Looking Back"
by 7th Surrender
Lyrics:

He said it feels like he's living in a glass room with no one inside
He said he lost his wife and now standing on the corner with a cardboard sign

So he's crying out to you Lord with all he has
He don't know where he's going to go but he's never looking back

He's never looking back, never looking back, never looking back

So I said that there is love that can break any chain
So I said that there is hope greater than the worlds pain
So I said that Jesus died on that rugged cross so that you could have life

Can you hear me? Don't you see me?

He said he feels like he's got a life worth living with Jesus inside
"I Believe"
by KB
Lyrics:

I, I
I believe
I believe
I believe that
I believe that
I believe that we will win

Awe-yeah, awe-yeah. let me take it there please
Brag on what you did, how you smashed your first week sales
Awe-yeah, it ain't like your numbers make vaccines, they heal weak cells
You brag when your money goes somewhere besides yourselves
I'm going without voice, where they got them bullets flying like it's powerpoint
Uh, and then I'm going down a jaco, where your chances of making it out are flaco
I'm with on the south side kids to the reach age and then head for the keys like spring break
Cause I believe that we intervene where the need's great and go and be change
Let me talk about it, I get it popping poppy
You probably got a problem
Before they can stop me got to cut my power like I'm Amish
Hold the torch up high in the thick dark
The dream works no matter how bad the pix are
Cause I see how bad the globe is, but they don't how bad our hope is
They don't know how bad we want this
It ain't where we at more it's where we going

I believe that we will win.

I, I
I believe
I believe
I believe that
I believe that
I believe that we will win
I believe that we will win

I tell my young dudes their success is up to you
But, that's hard when you've got twelve years of wack schools
So it's rap or it's packs, either way you get them bars
When they give up, we get
What's the system to our God? We don't fight for the W, (uh-Uh)
But, we fight from the W
Never said it wouldn't be trouble
But He brings trouble to whatever troubles you
Struggles do bring multiple valuable things that are wonderful
We suffer through, hustle through, but the truth He want to
Humble you, humble you, take you and break you and make you into another dude
Take away any other truth, He's the only one that can comfort you, ight

Ha-ha hiya (X2)
(woah) wait on it
(Ha-ha hiya) Tomorrow we live
He's making all things new, making all things new (hiya)

Tell the paraplegic, he gon' dance (hiya)
Tell breast cancer, she won't win (hiya)
Tell racism that he gon' end (hiya)

What He doesn't heal now, homie He gon' then, let's go
"Something To Say"
by The Red Airplanes
Lyrics:

Kick down the walls and light the fire
This fight's not gonna fight itself
It's time to write down this song in stone
It's time to be somebody else
Somebody that can fight
Somebody that can win

I still got something to say
I still got something to say right now
And I'm not ashamed to let it out
I live to give everybreath
I give every single breath I have
And until I'm dead I'll shout it out

Let your strength be my strength
Let your heart be my words
Let your kingdom call rise up
Oh God of heaven fill the Earth
Light the sky and shake the dirt
That all the world will know your worth

Let your kingdom call rise up

"How Could I"
by A Life Set Apart
Lyrics:

If I could change what I had done
I'd fix my wrongs one by one
I'd take my acts I'd make them clean
All for you, everything

I broke my vows and I was wrong
To run away and start a storm
I pushed you out and hid beneath
All the shame inside of me

How could I ever deny
The love I saw in your eyes
Broken I, left your side

But I can't change what I have done
Or fix my wrongs one by one
So I'll take my acts and make them clean
All for you everything

I broke my vows and I was wrong
So I'll turn to you through all the storms
I'll go to you and dwell within
All grace from you given

You wanted me but I had nothing to show
I broke all your rules and you never let go
I should have learned long before
That you were my love
That you were my hope

Years of mistakes stacked on my shoulders
Can't forgive myself I have lost all composure
And you still pull me closer
Through my failures I find favor
In my Savior
I'm burdened
Concerned and certain
That I deserve Hell
But i don't want that
Insead I'll fall flat not losing track
Avoiding attack while not looking back
"Vicious Cycle"
by The Protest
Lyrics:

It never ends the screams that echo inside me
Where can I find some rest or peace of mind?
I'm so alone and I'm falling to my knees
Just one more day and I don't think I'll survive
My heart is tiring from carrying this heavy load
It's just so sickening the way I let myself go
I crave release and a chance to change my fate
But I've caused so much pain am I too far gone? is it too late?

It goes on and on it never ends
I climb out but then I fall down again
The gears keep turning and I'm starting to fade
We're in the fight of our lives, this vicious cycle must break

Where does it end? I'm sick of running in circles
I'm fighting hard to keep my demons at bay
Lost in the war and this fear is internal
No one can see the pain that's on my face

This aggravation is so constant and so cruel
I've got the key inside but still I let it rule
All my attempts at breaking free have been in vain
And my confidence is broken and I'm losing strength

I hear a voice (it's calling to me)
And it's calling to me
It offers a choice (it offers a choice)
To live or die
"Not Alone"
by Random Hero
Lyrics:

Its time, time to go
Take back the life
The life you used to know
Don't let the ball drag you down
It drowns you out

Its not the way that it has to be
Trapped in the lies that keep you screaming
Its not the way that it has to be
You're not a mistake, just keep on breathing

Don't say the end has come
You've only just begun
There's more here, don't give up
Hold on till the morning comes
Don't let it go, don't let it go
Fight back cause you're not alone

It's time time to go
Give up giving in
You're stronger than you know
Let it all go
The pain you feel won't scar forever
"Heavydirtysoul"
by Twenty One Pilots
Lyrics:

There's an infestation in my mind's imagination
I hope they choke and smoke cause I'm smoking them out the basement
This is not rap, this is not hip-hop
Just another attempt to make the voices stop
Rapping to prove nothing, just writing to say something
Cause I wasn't the only one who wasn't rushing to say nothing
This doesn't mean I lost my dream
It's just right now I got a really crazy mind to clean

Gangsters don't cry
Therefore, therefore I'm Mr. Misty-eye, therefore I'm

Can you save
Can you save my
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
Can you save
Can you save my
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
For me, for me, oh
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
For me, for me, oh
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?

No I didn't understand the thing you said
If I didn't know better, I guess you're all already dead
Mindless zombies walking around with a limp and a hunch
Saying stuff like, "you only live once"
You got one time to figure it out
One time to twist and one time to shout
One time to think and I say we start now
Sing with me if you know what I'm talking about

Gangsters don't cry
Therefore, therefore I'm Mr. Misty-eye, therefore I'm

Can you save
Can you save my
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
Can you save
Can you save my
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
For me, for me, oh
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
For me, for me, oh
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?

Death inspires me like a dog inspires a rabbit
Death inspires me like a dog inspires a rabbit

"Broken Cisterns"
by Attalus
Lyrics:

I need to repent to you again
I've been fashioning idols with my hands
I'm laying them down now on the fire

I've been playing the harlot in my heart
I've been keeping my Baal in the deepest parts
But I'm burning them out now on the pyre

So receive my sacrifice
And revive my heart, O Christ
Cause I'm sick of drinking
Pleasures that can never satisfy

Jesus I confess
That the world's a wilderness
And all of my sins are broken cisterns

I'm thirsty for that spring
That can wash this sinner clean
So wash me again inside your river

I've been making your house a den of thieves
I've been worshipping as your spirit grieves
I say as I sin more: "Let Grace Abound"

Well today is the day I'm coming clean
Brokenness is my offering
So stand me again, Lord, on solid ground

Receive my sacrifice
Revive my heart, O Christ
Cause I'm sick of drinking
Pleasures that can never satisfy

Transform my mind, I pray
Restore my song of praise
Cause I'm sick of seeking
Treasures that will only fade away

Create in me a clean heart
And renew by Your Spirit, a right spirit
Tear my high places apart
I hear your word and I fear it, O God, I fear it
"They Don't Want It"
by Beacon Light
Lyrics:

I got that food for your mind
You Hungry?
And I ain't talking middle eastern countries
But if I was
Then I ran on this track with zeal
I rack my brain 'cause the truth is real

But they don't want to hear it
Drums mission from their ears
So percussion got 'em struggling
Like they caught up in a snare
They don't even care
So they're caught up like the air
Dating every kind of woman
I call it foreign affairs
Dead man walking
People still doing the Bernie?
Losing all their battles
Black-eyed like Fergie
You they're covered in their gold
Getting scarred like Xerxes
The lies they believe in been working

But I've been working too
I'm 'bout to bring them truth
So they will all be changed by God
Who made them all
And if they want Him they will call
But if they don't then they will all
Be pained they missed out on His call
He can save us before Him
We all stand and fall

I got that food for your mind
But they don't want it
I got the cure for the blind
But they don't want it
Do you want it?
Do you want it?
Do you want it?
They don't want it.

(ooh)
Cataclysmic they mad and twisted
They shattered their pictures
Like savages ravaging reaping havoc
(ooh)
Pattern vicious the tattered Christian
Should smash their sinning and trash it
Burn it to ashes 'til it passes
(ooh)
Mad assistance His Majesty gives us
To tackle the sin and in His passion
He took on the lashes
(ooh)
Mad persistence He passed and was risen
The Spirit mapping His wisdom
Blusting us with Passages
Christ in all my rapping
Many don't know what I'm spittin'
Like my mic was on inactive
So the listening to Pippen
33 when He went Diesel on that cross
And was risen
Hit that death up with that eagle
Left it lying lie a Griffon
This ain't fiction this is proven
No novel this is different
The survival is to grovel
When you wildin' and you sinning
A righteous man falls down But he gets back up
Sins like Heroin 'til it gets smacked up

You want to battle with a God? Try it!
And I aint talking what 5 percentors be piping
I'm talking 'bout the God
Who spoke words and made flames
His bars hot yo this ain't a game
No lie everybody gon' die
My grandma out here 95
Feeling like she's barely been alive
But in Christ you can live forever just decide
The choice is yours stay slain or
Never Die
"Gallows"
by Dustin Kensrue
Lyrics:

You work like every nail sunk
Every floorboard laid
Is another deed erased
Another debt that's paid
Like every story you've erected's gonna raise you up
So you keep slaving but it never seems to be enough

And now you're scared that it's all gonna crash to the ground
So you tied a knot and started climbing your way down
When you find that you've come to the end of your rope
Take a look and see where you were putting all your hope

Cause you built these gallows you've been hanging from
You've been holding to a noose
So just let go, just let go
You built these gallows you've been hanging from
And you got nothing to lose
So just let go, just let go

I love the wood's already rotting
Though you made it clean
You've hated every short cut
Concealed its crooked seam
But every flaw will be revealed
Each imperfection shown
Oh, I can hear the wind howl and the timber groan
"Young Diaries"
by Ilia
Lyrics:

Here, Here are the pages of diaries being torn out
And these, these are the silent memories of mine
Like blood being poured out
I watched you, I was behind you
As You bred me, you fed me, you led me
But just as soon I'm in a family that's broken apart
By your adulterous heart

Oh God, so carelessly I have been drawn
From your arms
Carry me to your graceful place
That vengeance just can't replace

These mirrors reveal nothing but regret
Such remindful regret
I can't help but to write these young diaries
So hard to forget

I look back
I see your hand lack mine
But I can remember just fine that
Your lips were poisoned
Your arms false refuge
Your heart, a deceitful deluge

Oh God, so carelessly I have been drawn
From your arms
Carry me to your graceful place
That vengeance just can't replace

I'm reaching out
I can't do this anymore
I don't remember who I used to be
All I see is rage
The blood of my enemies of their face
Humiliation engaged
Everything in me that I hate, regurgitates
You were just a face
A pitiful soul that once had a dream
Tell me again because I can't, and I don't believe
A God that loves me?! I can't even love myself

I release you from my wrath
(You and I are forgiven)
As I release me from my past
He's now breaking the grip of my heart
(You and I are forgiven)
With blood so innocently shed for my part
(This is all, this is where this all ends)
"Fire To The Night"
by Rapture Ruckus
Lyrics:

Coming soon...
"Yours Again"
by Red
Lyrics:

I can almost feel you breathing
Like a whisper in my ear
I remember how you lost me
Or how I lost you
I stare into the blackness
It's staring back at me
Why did I try to live without you
I want you, I need you

Open up my eyes
I need your light again
Burning me inside
I need your love again
I can feel our hearts collide
I can feel our hearts ignite
Open up my eyes
I'm yours again

Will I wake up from this moment
Will I see you slip away
Or is this a new beginning
Of beauty and rage
Where did I lose my passion
When did I start to fade
Without you my world is darkness
I won't let go again

I'm yours again, I'm yours again
I'm never letting go, I'm never letting go, I'm never letting go
I'm yours again, I'm yours again, I'm yours again

"Aftermath"
by Fever Fever
Lyrics:

I build a road of darkness with my two bare hands
To get a little bit closer
I build a ship in the sky with my eyes on the sand
To feel a little bit higher

But in the aftermath
Of your reckless love
I feel more alive
Then I ever was
Before my ruins fell
I felt damned to hell
And now my spirit flows on loving sails

I sowed my cloths from the earth
To feel a little less shameful
I took enough from the rock and I cut his throat
To feel a little more able

I see clouds drift away
And the sun on my face takes the weight off my shoulders
I see stones come crashing down to the earth
And my struggle is over
"The Last Stand"
by I Am Spartacus
Lyrics:

We never wanted a riot
We only want an awakening
The media lies to deny it
but this republic is still worth saving. Freedom is born for the first time
out of the ashes of tyranny
With faith in the son of the most high, this republic is still worth saving

Destiny is calling
All we know is falling
Freedom hangs by a thread
Bound together we're not finished yet
There's a fire burning
Hearts of men are turning
Look to the Holy One
Freedom isn't dead, it's just begun

Wake up your friends and your neighbors. We fell asleep and it's plain to see
We turned our hearts from the savior
But this republic is still worth saving. Come on and feel the revival
Watch as the blind begin to see. God is alive and he's able
This republic is still worth saving
This is the last stand on earth. They look to us. We look to Jesus
This is the last stand on earth. They look to us. We look to Jesus
"99% Soul"
by Matty Mullins
Lyrics:

One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
I want to look like you, talk like you, know you more
One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
Make me more like you, come on and make me

I remember a time when I never thought that I'd believe
A prisoner to myself like everyone else
Thinking life was about me, but then I figured it out

One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
I want to look like you, talk like you, know you more
One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
Make me more like you, come on and make me whole

Every day is a new chance to be the man you see in me
So I'll live life one mistake at a time
And trust that grace will guide my feet
I'll never look back knowing that everywhere I go you'll be
I see the truth of your love shining bright through every part of me
So I just want to be

One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
I want to look like you, talk like you, know you more
One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
Make me more like you, come on and make me whole

I'm standing on solid ground cause I know
I'm one percent body, ninety-nine percent soul

Now I am not my own, I was bought with blood
Once was lost but now I know
I've been found by love, your love

One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
I want to look like you, talk like you, know you more
One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
Make me more like you, come on and make me whole

I'm standing on solid ground cause I know
I'm one percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
"Lost Cause"
by Random Hero
Lyrics:

I know the truth it's not hard to deny
But somewhere my heart got lost in the lie
My faith is dying to see like you see

I'm on a oneway ticket to the darkside of me
Will you hear me if I keep screaming

Is there any sign of life that's inside of me
Should I believe I'm a dead man walking
Say a prayer shine your light down over me
Let me see I'm not a lost cause anymore

It's like you love, you love it, everytime that I bleed
I've been reaching out you're the cure that I need
It's time to knock it down, drag it out, cut myself free
"Downtown"
by Revely
Lyrics:

Well I took the back alley last night
Trying to avoid all the city lights
All of the boys and girls
They're going places and they're getting a taste of
What the night holds

Well I hear the pavement crack underneath the street
We are walking around but we are dead asleep
And we're all trying oh we're all dying
To see where the night goes

So wake us up to what we need to be
Run downtown and light up all the streets

We've got a shaking voice
We've got a nervous gut
Cause we are finding out we know nothing of love
So open up our eyes
We are for real be where our lives go

Cause I don't want the sun to set from the sky
Lest I can stand and say I gave up my whole life
For something deeper oh and something richer
Than where the night goes

We don't wanna be asleep
we wanna wake up
We're shouting from the city streets
Oh how we need you so much

"Runners"
by Lecrae
Lyrics:

Uh, I can't lie, I admire beauty like the next man
I still remember when I used to get my check cashed
Get my hair cut, I hit the streets with my head gassed
Lookin' out for little mommas with a fat faaassssst
That's what my auntie used to tell me
Girl in my rear view tryna tail me
Cause she knew wasn't nothing you could tell me
Always on a trail of another female
Well, well they say my papa was a player
So my dishonesty is honest in me baby
Somehow in college greek letters made me cuter
All the time on line I still couldn't compute it
Uh, I pledge girls then it's on to the next girl
My next girl eventually be my ex girl
But its' funny how it all unfolds
I done finally found a woman I ain't never letting go, whoa

Ooh she looking bad (Don't do it)
I wonder if she got a man (Don't do it)
I don't see no wedding band (Don't do it)
I promise you don't wanna go through it (Look, take it from me)
You don't want no problems (You don't want no problems)
You don't want no problems (You don't want no problems)
You don't want no problems G
Find yourself in the obituary column sheet

It ain't nothing like a good woman
If you got you one of those, be good to 'em
Keep it one hundred, love everybody want it
But the lies and the lust keep lying next to us, but
I got past, and now I'm known to pass it
Up from my passion and I ain't here blastin'
Born a sinner just like any man standing
Couldn't keep the standard so God sent a stand-in
If you creepin' when you feel desire creep in
I know another way to win that don't involve cheating
Don't involve another heart broken into pieces
When a girl call you tell you she saw you on Peachtree
Meet pretty underscore nice features
Had a couple drinks and had yourself a little piece and
Now you feel like the man in the streets pull up to the crib
I see your pants in the street, man
"It Was You"
by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Lyrics:

I relate what is to come
To having bullets but no gun
This song is not for everyone
And I've failed once before
Yes, I've failed twice before
But someone caught my fall

It was you, all along
It was you, all along
Every single time
I needed someone by my side
It was you, all along

Things aren't always as they seem
But I have nothing up my sleeves
Maybe that's why I will succeed
'Cause I failed once before
Yes I've failed twice before
But someone caught my fall
"Erased"
by Relentless Flood
Lyrics:

Oh God I've done it again, I've fallen on my face
I'm drowning in this shame, my mind will not erase
So now I lift up my eyes to the One who is "I Am"
For by His blood I'm justified

My life, my time, is not about me at all
My sins, they're gone, as far as the east is from the west
It's not about what I've done, because of who you are
My debt has been erased

Why have I struggled so long, in a war with my own mind
Oh God please take it away, help me cut the ties that bind
I'm done with living in this self-inflicted shame
Because the waters of Your mercy, they are deep enough for me – yeah

Praise the One! He took my place!
He will reign forevermore!
"Here's Our Cry"
by We Are Vessel
Lyrics:

These lies, it tells, this world is leading itself
To fear, to doubt, what life is all about What life is all about

We are a nation rising, can you hear our battle cry?
We are lifting up our arms, we're taking freedom back
With You leading the way, we cannot fall into our past mistakes
Here's our cry!

Whoa Oh, Whoa oh
We want our liberty
Whoa Oh, Whoa Oh
We want our nation free

There's hurting and fighting, but we're too busy trying
To fill our lives, to hide the brokenness inside
The brokenness inside!

"Out Of The Fire"
by Audio Adrenaline
Lyrics:

I hear the lies of the enemy
Draw me into captivity
I know this is not how it's meant to be
I gotta break free

I want the world to know
There is an antidote
A cure for this disease
You are the remedy

Out of the fire
Pull me into the river
Out of the fire
Only you can deliver me
From myself
My soul is singing

Out of the fire
Pull me under the water
Into the life only your love can offer me
My God my soul, is singing

There is an absolute
A healing for these wounds
A love that's guaranteed
You are the remedy

You take my sin
I breathe you in
"Love Changed Everything"
by Bread Of Stone
Lyrics:

Sometimes I see myself in the eyes of a vulture
Sometimes I hear my own voice like a howl
Cause I'll fight, crawl, Do what I can to make it on my own
I'm left out cold and alone, So cold and alone

Pull me from this sadness
Save me from this madness

Take me from the darkness
I wanna see the sunrise

I'm wandering out in the night still looking for a way back home
I got trapped by the lies I was told and the teeth sunk down to the bone
Now I'm chained down I wanna be free from the life I've always known
I've tried this so many times But I can't break free on my own

Don't know what I'm fighting for
Tell me what I have to gain
I wanna lose myself in Your grace
Show me how I need You now
I'm never gonna be the same
Your love changed everything
"Mental"
by KJ-52
Lyrics:

They say we crazy but we dont care
They say we crazy but we dont care

I be goin mental
I be goin mental
You, he, they be
We be goin mental

KJ:
I'm almost 4-0 but feeling like I'm half of that
Ya blind to the truth, you like some old dudes with cataracts
My God will crack the roof and boom the sky like it's rat-a-tat
So I grab the track ride the rap like the saddle back

Searching for directions
Like some tags on a Apple map
Never learned my lesson
What I had I tried to grab it back
The I start repenting then heaven
Became my habitat
And now we kind of tight
Like He-Man and Battle Cat

Tell me what you laughing at
Y'all just need to go with me
Y'all just need to face the fact
That you need to roll with me

I get so amazed that He died and He rose
And He came as the Lion King
But you treat Him like Hello Kitty

Hello Diddy. Sup! Hello J. Yo!
What's Up Fiddy? Ok. What's up Wayne? What up?
You know My King the One who runs down the whole thing
In case you never understand here's why we so cray

Tedashii:
I be going mental (duh)
That's what we fix'n to go now
Even if it hurt I got to get it (ok)
It's about to go down (let's go)
He chose to get me He rolling with me
He could've killed me no smokin' pistol
Alive now on fire now
Can't be tied down it's worldwide

All around the country they losin' it
Yeah get used to it
Off is how I used to live but now it's only through the switch
Unashamed, it's not a game, man we passionate
It's about to get crazy. baby make sure you fasten it

Crazy that's what they say
Mental that's what they think
If you been through what I been through
Then you might just go insane

They say we crazy but we don't care
Yeah, I was crazy before I got here

KJ:
From the back to the front
It's packing a pump that's smacking and racking them up
I rap and attack, the stuff they happen to love
We snatchin' 'em up
They acting the punk
They braggin' it up and they laugh and they cracking 'em up
The claim they backing it up
But all I got is love

He came in the flesh, He came and He left
When he rose to the sky and above
He came with a death He came and He went
For those recognized in the Blood

He came and He bled, I claim what he said
'Cause all I have is the One
That came and He lived and I claim
What He did so I rap and brag on the Son like -
"Chain Reaction"
by Love Like Gravity
Lyrics:

Wake up, our city's falling
It's not impossible to save
We've failed our one devotion
Now, flip the circuit like a renegade

We sleep while our beds are burning
Tucked in so warm and tight
But we'll all wake up beggars
Blind eyed to the fire fly

The danger creeps in when we close our eyes
While we sleep so paralyzed
This status quo is madness

Just imagine
A chain reaction
Come on, ignite the passion
Chain reaction
A chain reaction

We weigh our strength in numbers
We hang them on our wall
Stacked up like mindless dominos
Line 'em up now and watch 'em fall
No more...the hum drum holy
We'll choke on every breath
Like a sweet drink for the masses
Padded seats and the smell of death
"Depraved"
by The Overseer
Lyrics:

You could take me home
And never leave me alone
Break this heart of stone
Then I could dance

Broken, we are all the same
Vices locked inside our frames
Desperate and depraved is all we are

Everyone's loved, but nobody's lovely
Everyone's low, but nobody's lowly
Everyone blames but nobody's blameless
Everyone shames but nobody's shameless

Everyone's used but nobody's useless

"Sirens"
by Attalus
Lyrics:

Here come the sirens.
Charming and sweet.
Saying "I got I got I got everything you need."
Hungry as lions.
Primed for the feast.
Beauty at times is just a side of the beast.
Beauty at times is just a lie.

Voices of culture.
Charming and sweet.
Saying "I got I got I got something good to eat."
Gather as vultures.
Ready to feed.
And before you know you're being swallowed up by greed.
Before you know you're being swallowed.

Don't get their song stuck in your head.
Don't let them lure you into bed.
Don't heed the song of the sirens or you're gonna wind up dead.
They're just devils in disguise.
Hell's sick mirage of paradise.
Don't lift your eyes to the sirens
One look could take your life.

Can you feel them? breathing down upon your neck.
Their shadows fall upon the deck.
Like fantasies that haven't yet turned into nightmares.
I know their way seems so sublime.
I know their rivers run with wine.
But in the end you're gonna find there is no light there.
Oh they're breathing down upon your neck.
Their shadows fall upon the deck.
Like fantasies that haven't yet turned into nightmares.
I know their way seems so sublime.
I know their poison tastes like wine.
But in the end you're gonna find it's all a lie.

Be not betrayed by their cries
Lest you be dragged to the depths.
Don't let them feed you a lie.
Don't let them feed on your flesh.

Here come the sirens.
Charming and sweet.
Saying "I got I got I got everything you need."
"Angels & Demons"
by Disciple
Lyrics:

I was off the beaten path I thought that I was free at last
Living in the shadows
Paranoid and breathing fast, knees collapse
So get away its too late to save me
Day and night I run and hide
Wishing you would forget me in the shadows
You denied my suicide, I came alive
And now I know

(Not one) Nothing can tear us apart
Nothing can separate me
Nothing can break us apart
Nothing can separate
No angel, no demon, no danger, no enemy
(Not one) Nothing can break us apart
Theres not one thing that can separate me

I was just a runaway, full of pain in love with hate
Looking for a reason
I could only speculate to my fate
Until the day that you came to save me
From each trap every attack
I had life but you gave it a reason
Perfect love has filled me up, I am alive
And now I know

Nothing can separate!
"What Matters"
by Embers In Ashes
Lyrics:

What Matters
We will time to move slowly as the moments pass
We dream of days weve lost, while clinging to our past
If we all could wake up and see life as it is

A passing cloud of smoke a momentary breath
Show me what it is that matters
Focus every breath I take
Take my life broken and tattered
Remake me for Your sake
Mistakes from my past haunt me everyday

I think of all I've done
How can I be saved
Breath on me new life
I know theres more than this
Wake me up inside

Show me how to live
Reshape my life and make me new
Just make my minds focus You
Take every part of who I am
Give me direction help me stand
"Feel Alive"
by New Hope Christian College
Lyrics:

In this moment I can see your dawn about to break
The light is coming with an end to all my past mistakes
I can feel my heart, it's waking up from hibernation state

My lungs are full, my lungs are full

You make me feel alive

My heart is beating out my chest, I can't express this clearly
My eyes are open, I can see you coming, drawing near me
Your light surrounds me like the stars of every galaxy

You got me singing about the time
That I had fallen down, but you picked me up
The time that I had broken down, but you built me up
The time that I had hit the ground, but you pulled me up
High above it all
"Dance On My Grave"
by Riverside Confession
Lyrics:

Come on people dance on my grave
Don't you know that death has lost it's sting
Come on people dance on my grave
Dont you know that I'm in a better place

Some take it too hard

I tip my hat to the undertaker man
This is what he said to me
Son you don't have to be afraid if you know where you will be
I tip my hat to the undertaker man
This is what he said to me
Son do you know when you die where your soul is gonna be
That's what the undertake said

Come on people dance on my grave
Dont you know that I'm in a better place
Come on people put the flowers down
No that ain't nothing but a bit of hollow ground

Some take it too hard
Six feet of dirt can't hold me down

No man has to face eternity alone
Or walk blindly into the great unkown
The body is a shell the soul is free
The body is a shell God set me free
